[Nut-upsdev] New sub-driver submission process timeframe?

Faster than I expected, I've become somewhat disenchanted by the openups-usb driver.

So, if I write my own subdriver for our UPS...how quickly can I expect that it will be incorporated in some downloadable version of nut that a user can then use?

The main reason I ask is because I have to include a guide for getting the UPS to work in Linux.  If I can simply stipulate that they have to download NUT version 2.xx.xx and the driver will be included, then that makes things a lot easier than having to provide the driver ourselves along with the procedure for them to add it to the NUT source, etc.  I'm not talking about in a package, I mean just a part of the sources that they can download, extract, compile, install.

I have just under two months to have a guide a customer can use to make the UPS shutdown their Linux PC.  If that won't be enough time to get something into the NUT trunk, then I'll have to make-do with the openups-usb driver, and work our own driver later.

I've read through the 3.9 Source Code Management section of the dev guide.  I'm much more familiar with svn than git, though I know that needs to change.
